Chat Filter

Running a family server? Fed up of griefers not only griefing your world - but your chat too? Then you need new ChatFilter!

ChatFilter lets you set up a list of trigger words that, when matched in chat will cancel the message and send the player a custom message, be it a warning or just a friendly nudge. It can even kick offenders if required.

ChatFilter offers both part and whole word matching options, so you can block messages very intelligently.

You can also set up a list of words to trigger a custom server broadcast.

And, from v2.0.0 it now screens commands of your choice - e.g. /msg

Just download - run once - and then edit lang.yml to setup your filter words and trigger phrases.

ChatFilter is a lightweight plugin for when you want a simple solution for controlling swearing on your server.

You can see the default settings here . Warning contains the swear words that trigger warnings.

Current Version: 2.0.0


kick: [true|false] Set to true to kick players who swear.

showInConsole: [true|false] Show player's name and the offending message in console.

censor: [true|false] Censor messages instead of blocking entire message.

agressiveMatching: [true|false] Attempts to match more words by looking for 3=e 0=o etc.

Edit lang.yml (created on first run) to change the trigger words, commands to filter and notification text.
